NEW BRITAIN - January in March. That’s what weather forecasters are predicting for today, the first full day of spring.

According to WFSB-TV3 meteorologist Mark Dixon, New England is expecting its fourth nor’easter in less than a month today. The storm will dump plowable snow on the region, along with sleet on the coast, and will come with high winds that could bring down tree branches and power lines.

The interior parts of Connecticut could see anywhere from 6 to 12 inches of snow, with lesser amounts on the shoreline.

Temperatures will be in the 30s.

Flakes could fly as early as this morning, but the brunt of the storm is expected to hit the area in the afternoon ahead of the evening commute.
